Ich can look like a little whitish greyish thing and it will encase itself in a cyst but I'm not sure that's what you are dealing with. Regardless it sounds like an external parasite of some kind. I'm hesitant to suggest meds without knowing more about it, and I know it's difficult but you can try a prophylactic treatment of Cupramine. (no higher than 0.25 mg/l for 14 days. This should kill any external parasites anyway and if it is ich it should cover the whole life cycle. But you will need a copper test kit. There are others like malachite green that will do much the same thing but I'll let the other members weigh in their opinions first...
